Knowledge Translation in Nursing and Healthcare provides authoritative guidance on the implementation of evidence-informed practice, covering issue identification and clarification, solution building and implementation, evaluation, and sustainment. Integrating theory, empirical research, and experiential knowledge, this hands-on resource assists nurses and healthcare practitioners in collecting quality evidence, transforming it into a useable, customized recommendation, and then applying best practice in various point-of-care settings.  

Written by highly experienced researchers and practitioners, the book demonstrates how the synthesis and translation of evidence supports improvement of existing care and service delivery models, and produces increased benefit for both patients and health services. Examples drawn from the authors’ first-hand experience - such as pressure injury prevention in acute care, transition of care for people with heart failure, and community leg ulcer care - illustrate the use of best practice in addressing care and quality issues. This important reference and guide:  

  • Outlines a planning framework that activates research and evidence in practice settings, moving knowledge into action and sustaining the use of best practice 
  • Introduces the framework that enables effective evidence-informed methodology and decision-making  
  • Features numerous illustrative field examples of both successful and unsuccessful implementations in a variety of practical situations  
  • Offers perspectives on best practice implementation from experienced practitioners and researchers  

Knowledge Translation in Nursing and Healthcare is a must-have for those wanting to implement, evaluate, and sustain best practice in the delivery of evidence-informed healthcare to patients, families, and communities.
